Warner Bros. owns the copyright on the "Happy Birthday" song.

So, you can't sing it on TV or in a movie unless you pay the company a royalty.

That's insane. But for this reason, a guy in North Carolina, Greg May, decided to write a NEW happy birthday song.

He wrote it in 2006.

Over the past nine years, he's spent most of his free time and at least $150,000 having a woman do versions for EVERY NAME you can think of, BuzzFeed reported.

He's posted YouTube videos for 22,000 names so far, and he's still going.

He did 5,000 last year alone. And he's done multiple versions for each name, in several different languages.

So he's posted about 300,000 videos total.

And the best part is the song is TERRIBLE. It's long, annoying, the woman's not a great singer, it randomly includes "Feliz Compleanos" and for some reason she imitates a dog barking and howling -- on every single version.

Check out the sample below, then go here and find your personalized version!
